Miracle Whip Light Contain Gluten?
0

19 posts in this topic

Hello!

I've researched this all morning but can't find a current answer. Is Kraft Miracle Whip LIGHT gluten free? Kraft lists the REGULAR as gluten-free, but doesn't list the LIGHT. Does anyone know??? I've only been diagnosed 6 weeks and I've stopped progressing. It coincides with figuring out that Miracle Whip Light tastes great on my chicken! So know I'm wondering if I've really screwed up! :o I've contacted Kraft, but no response yet. Any clue?

Thanks!

Sonya

Kraft's policy is to always list all forms of gluten. If wheat, barely, malt or rye are not clearly listed on the ingredient listing or allergen statement, it is gluten free.

On the other hand, Miracle Whip Light has never been gluten free, so I would not trust it. If you read in the forums, you will find it has always contained gluten.

Kraft says it always tells you the ingredients...why do M&M's, Snickers, Oreo cookies (Nabisco is a division of Kraft), some Ritz Crackers...all contain melamine??? That's an ingredient, and we were not told about it.

I never did trust Kraft totally, and now I know I won't again!

"On the other hand, Miracle Whip Light has never been gluten free, so I would not trust it. If you read in the forums, you will find it has always contained gluten."

That's my concern. Kraft carefully lists all the "versions" of their gluten-free products. They include "regular", "light", and "free" for condiments. And, the Miracle Whip only says "regular". Hmmmm. Then I looked it up and other folks on the web said that the "light" variety wasn't gluten free, but that was ancient info. Obviously, I won't use it anymore if I'm not sure. But, being new at this I was REALLY hoping to find out if it's stalled my healing since I eat it daily. And, my progress has definitely gone backward. Has anybody been glutened by it???

Thanks for everyone's responses!

I think you have your answer.

Unless, of course, there's another ingredient in the product that's giving you symptoms.

My general policy is to stick with products that actually say "gluten free" unless I can get a response from the company - or someone on this forum has done so and posted the reply.

I find it difficult to believe that Miracle Whip is gluten free, but the "Lite" version is not.

I found this difficult to believe too, yet my sister, who is a celiac, and a dietician, called and asked, was told that Miracle Whip Light definitely contains gluten. She doesn't eat it, and I believe her when she says it contains gluten!

There is NO Kraft list. There hasn't been for many, many, many years. Any "list" would be at last 7 years old, maybe a decade.

It's very simple. Read the ingredients. No wheat, rye or barley, it's gluten-free. Wheat, rye or barley is listed, it's not gluten-free. Kraft was one of the first to do this and one of the first to regularly list allergens.

This is what Kraft says:

"Kraft does not use Chinese milk ingredients in US products or in any products made outside of China. Of the products we make in China, some do contain low levels of milk ingredients from that country. And we

"I want to see a link, just as you are always telling us! You need to prove your points too."

Where's the link? Why, it's at Kraft's consumer alert page! Imagine that!

http://kraft.com/MediaCenter/milk_ingredient_update.aspx

Now, let's take a look at the story you provided.

"The test results raise the number of known melamine-tainted food products imported to South Korea from China to 10."

Let's see now, South Korea. Hmmm, last time I looked, this was the USA. And lo and behold the Kraft statement says those products that are made in China do NOT COME TO THE U.S. Again, China-made products containing milk do NOT come to the U.S.

The FDA has not issued any warnings. Kraft says those products don't come to the U.S. So please explain again why you think we are eating melamine-tainted products by Kraft. And this time please provide a link showing that those products are indeed reaching the U.S. or Europe.

BTW, I looked at the ingredients for Miracle Whip Lite. No wheat, rye or barley. Of course I can't guarantee anything about contamination, but as formulated, it's meant to be gluten-free.

"Melamine was found in Snickers Peanut Funsize and M&Ms chocolate milk made by Mars, as well as KitKat wafers made by Nestle and a biscuit manufactured by Lotte Confectionery Co., the Food and Drug Administration said in a statement Saturday."

None of these products are made by Kraft. How is this relevant?

Sarcasm does not become you Richard. The Associated Press says it has come to the USA. I have never believed Kraft to be as nice as you want everyone to believe they are. Kraft also will say what it wants us to hear, of course, they are not going to tell us to stop buying their product. Read the newspapers yourself, I provided the links needed, if you want to hide your head in the sand, that's your problem. They have already said the FDA is researching all this...it takes time, doesn't happen overnight, just like it didn't happen overnight tainting all these foods and killing little babies.

Snickers and M&M's are made by Mars, a division of Kraft. Look it up, just as Nabisco is a division of Kraft. I had not heard about the KitKats yet. Anyways, Mars and Nabisco are Kraft...now do you see why it's relevant?

Mars is NOT Kraft; it is privately owned by the Mars family and has nothing to do with Kraft, unless some of the family members happen to own a few Kraft shares.

Nestle SA, the maker of KitKat, is a publicly held company with headquarters in Switzerland and, again, has no connection with Kraft.

Nabisco is owned by Kraft, but none of the products you mentioned are made by Nabisco.

So, I still wonder, how is what you said in any way relevant to Kraft?

Clickable links are provided in the text.

I read about the connection of Mars and Kraft in an Associated Press announcement the other day, and I don't care if they are not one in the same...they both used the tainted milk products.

I guess, whether they have melamine or not isn't as interesting to me as the fact that these "chocolate" products are mostly chemicals. I feel like we've been lulled into eating a lot of things that are not good, and possibly bad, for us.

This whole melamine contamination thing, first with the pet food, and then with the milk, brings home the need for awareness about what you eat and where it comes from.

And I eat Miracle whip light with no reactions. There are no obvious gluten containing ingredients.

Good, I'm sure they have changed the ingredients, it did contain gluten. These companies can change ingreds anytime they want. We have to always read the label, every time we buy the product. I was using Hellman's Canola Mayo, and it was great, then I got sick with it. They had changed it, made it cholesterol free, and added soy to it. I can't have soy, so now, I can't have mayo again. :(

The food situation does scare me, and that's why I try to stick to foods with as few ingredients as possible.

    • Celiac Sensitivity?
      For dining out, check out the website: http://Www.findmeglutenfree.com.  They list restaurants with gluten free menu's and options in your area and there are reviews from other celiacs on there to help you figure out the better, safe places to eat.  Great web site!   Although it is optimal to not dine out at first, reality sometimes gets in the way.  I had booked a trip months before I got really sick and would have lost a lot of money if I did not go.  A month after diagnosis, I flew overseas and ate out for dinner only every night.  I ate plain foods but they were well prepared so still quite good. I never got sick.  I was careful and it worked. Luckily, Europe was way more gluten free knowledgeable than the US at that time and still is.  So, it can be done if you are very careful!
    • Anyone experience brain fog like this?
      Thanks for the reply, melprkr! Feeling like you're still in a swimming pool moving is a good way to put it. It feels kind of like motion sickness, come to think of it, or a really bad hangover. I was curious because my experience of 'brain fog' in the context of thyroid problems feels so different than brain fog caused by gluten, and I couldn't quite figure out how to explain it. Swimming pool comes pretty close, though. Hope you feel better soon as well!

      Although, gluten free...chocolate gives me reflux if I eat too much.  I can handle only a little.
    • 3 year old Biopsy concern
      Hi. I'm brand new to all of this. Long story short but basically my three year old tested positive for antibodies last week. His biopsy is coming up and I've read some debate about it. I'm nervous for him to be fully sedated and if so want to make sure it's worth it. He's been off gluten for a week which his gi assured me wouldn't change the biopsy results in two weeks. He's like a new kid so I'm just wondering why put him through it. I have two other kids that we now want do the blood test on and I'm guessing a biopsy would help for them to know. Again just hesitant. Thank you
    • Anyone experience brain fog like this?
      Brain fog is a common symptom.  I had a hamburger patty from a local restaurant and am suffering the effects.  Sometimes mine is bad and sometimes it is mild.  This one feels mild, provided I am not "glutened" again.  I have the exact same feelings when I am contaminated.  I actually had 2 good days this week to ony have to go back through this again.  The first day is just tired and want to sleep, but as each day goes on it seems like all I can do to concentrate and do anything.  TV is OK but for me just standing up or moving sometimes makes me dizzy.  Luckily I don't have the nausea but even sitting still I feel like I am in a swimming pool moving.  You know kind of like when you were a kid and you got in the pool or went roller skating but then got out and and you still felt like you in the pool or skating?  The anxiety and the depression is the worst.  I am taking things to help with it but it doesn't always help.  Only thing that seems to help sometimes is just going in to my room and laying there and not moving and just going to sleep.   It will pass.  Just be cautious about everything.  I have opted to let my family know that I will bring my OWN food when we have gatherings.  I don't mind being the odd man out because I am already the odd ball.  One thing I have learned and that is people mean well but mistakes happen and we are the ones who have to pay the price.   Hope you feel better soon.

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
